Iznik Ceramics and Mood Indigo

Turkish jars below from

On Saturday as I browsed Anthropologie for new arrivals, I spotted a truly splendid book, Iznik: The Artistry of Ottoman Ceramics mixed in with a display of deep blue and white tabletop items. Indigos, navys and other rich dark blues seem more prevalent these days. Maybe there's a connection to the 1980s revival happening in design. Whatever it is, I find myself gravitating to navy combined with aqua or turquoise, and crisp white, in stylized Eastern inspired patterns.

BTW: look for Anthropologie's take on the blue and white plate to appear soon online.

You can never go wrong with blue and white - it is so classically appealing - I have been accenting rooms with transferware since I was 19!
